If you're using ODBC drivers or Power BI Components in Power BI that rely on OAuth authentication to connect to a Source/API, it's essential to know that some sources require users to reauthenticate after a certain period (for example, Facebook might ask you to reauthenticate every six months). In such cases, our drivers provide a seamless solution by automatically prompting users to log in to the source.
However, when you use our drivers on tools that do not support user prompts, you might encounter the following error: ODBC: ERROR .
To resolve this error and ensure smooth OAuth reauthentication, follow these steps:
Open the ODBC Administrator.
Locate and configure the Data Source Name (DSN) you are using for your connection.
Perform a retest of the connection to ensure it's functioning correctly.
Complete the OAuth reauthentication process by authenticating through the user prompt.
This straightforward process will help you bypass the error and maintain uninterrupted access to your Source/API.
